A Kendebe camp activist, in West Darfur, announced that 16 displaced persons have died in the past few weeks due to different kinds of diseases, Radio Dabanga has learned on Sunday, 7 October.
He explained that many doctors prescribe medications that must be purchased from the market, instead of providing it to patients, adding that most displaced cannot afford buying medicines.
In addition, the activist said that it is common to find fake and expired medicines being sold at the camp's market, revealing that there is not one monitoring entity that controls the quality of remedies.
According to the source, mostly children and elderly have died of diseases such as diarrhea, malaria and cough in the past weeks.
He appealed to humanitarian organizations and to the state ministry of health to intervene and solve this situation.
